In this paper a 1-DOF- (degree of freedom) biped machine is presented to be used for a rickshaw robot. Main features for the proposed biped walking system are low-cost design and easy-operation in terms of compactness, light weight, and reduced number of DOFs. A numerical characterization is proposed with a suitable kinematic analysis.

Abstract

In this paper a 1-DOF- (degree of freedom) biped machine is presented to be used for a rickshaw robot. Main features for the proposed biped walking system are low-cost design and easy-operation in terms of compactness, light weight, and reduced number of DOFs. A numerical characterization is proposed with a suitable kinematic analysis. A prototype has been built and experimental tests have been carried out to validate the proposed design and test its practical feasibility for a rickshaw robot. The robot has been tested in several operating conditions.
